Transcending creative disciplines Perth artist Sioux Tempestt creates abstract, mural, sculptural and digital art which meaningfully contributes to its context. In her 2021 experiential show INNOMINATE Sioux expressed creativity through mixed media, writing, video and music. The production of her music under the ABSTRKT XNOIS pseudonym is released through Sub Rosa Music.
Sioux aims to constantly push the boundaries of her practice by traversing across different mediums. She intuitively fuses colour and form to investigate the integration of abstract expressionism within different realms: the public art environment; architectural landscape; digital applications. Sioux seeks to conceptually express dynamism and movement through painterly interpretations. The marks of paint and other medium recording the kinetic energy of paint as it is transferred from her body to surface.
Sioux often uses photography for research, to document environments and ideas, then deconstruct/reconstruct the imagery or enlarge it to microscopically investigate and illustrate objects in greater depth.
Sioux has been involved in numerous group shows and held 11 solo exhibitions, the most recent in 2023 at the Brunswick Street Gallery in Melbourne.
